Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is Hen in a Basket, not Toad in the Hole It's delicious, but named incorrectly. Toad in the Hole is an English breakfast dish with baked sausages. I guess they were thinking Egg in the Hole? Anyway -- this is a tasty variation of the recipe, particularly with the chives on top. A great way to use up stale bread! I used some thick cut sourdough, since that's what I had on hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our family calls this "Eggs in a Nest" This really is one of the easiest ways I've ever found to make eggs for breakfast. It's so versatile! I love to top mine with cheese, salsa, diced avocado, and diced grape tomatoes. And we always save the inner circles and cook them at the same time as the eggs in nests. We put jelly on them, so we have eggs and toast. The jelly on the circle makes a great sweet counterpoint to the savory egg in a nest.
